Pore Fluid Unit Weight

The Pore Fluid Unit Weight is entered on the Groundwater page of the Project Settings dialog. The Pore Fluid Unit weight is used to determine:

The calculated pore pressure at any given point is directly proportional to the Pore Fluid Unit Weight if the Groundwater Method is set to:

The Pore Fluid Unit Weight does NOT enter into the pore pressure calculations, if the Groundwater Method is set to:

The default value of the Pore Fluid Unit Weight is determined by the Units of Measurement selected in Project Settings ( 9.81 kN/m3 for metric units, 62.4 lbs/ft3 for Imperial Units). However, the user may change this value, if necessary.
